London: A cup of tea could be a secret weapon to fight poison used in terror attacks if UK scientists are to be believed. Academics at Cardiff University`s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences discovered a chemical, polyphenol found in tea can deactivate ricin - a highly-toxic ingredient used in fatal terrorist attacks, the `Daily Mail` reported. "Our new findings suggest that if the security services want to counter the threat of ricin, they may find the answer in their morning cup of tea," Professor Les Baillie was quoted by the paper as saying.
